Scary/off Beat Cinema Series Film #2: Spring Breakers! (Oz on Crack!)

 

Well, Spring Breakers is here...

Never heard of this film but guns, bikinis and spring break sounds like a good mix. Now this film has really surprised me. I know nothing about this film but its been getting really good reviews! 67% trending on Rotten Tomatoes and the director (Harmony Korine) is some kind of indy director in which this is his first main stream film. (Always a good sign). Also, this film was selected for TIFF!

The movie stars: James Franco in what they say is one of his best performances... (They say its better than Oz)...

Spring Breakers

I heard that this film is like Oz: The Great and Powerful but its Oz on Crack!

This film has graphic nudity (female) , guns and a bit violence. The trailer looks interesting as seen below.

 

Trailer - (I put the international uncensored trailer on here instead of the US trailer. Its a little more provocative and bit more edgy than the US trailer). Enjoy...  :)

Best friends since elementary school, Brit, Candy, Cotty and Faith now live together in the same college dorm and plan to fund their spring break getaway by burglarizing a fast food shack. But that's only the beginning. During a night of partying, the girls hit a roadblock when they are arrested on drug charges. Hung-over and clad only in bikinis, they appear before a judge, but are bailed out unexpectedly by Alien, an infamous local thug who takes them under his wing and leads them on the wildest spring break trip in history. Rough on the outside but with a soft spot inside, Alien wins over the hearts of the girls and leads them on a Spring Break they never could have imagined.

    This movie takes spring break movies to a whole other level, very graphic and not at all what one would expect. Reminded me of Pulp Fiction.

    This was a weird movie that Im glad I saw. Not the normal 'Girls gone wild' Spring Break movie but turned out to be a dark, gang turf war by the end.. A twist ending but James Franco really pulled off an excellent performance

      Hey Yvette, It looks like it starts off as a normal Spring Break (Girls gone Wild) movie but by the trailer, it looks like it gets a lot darker...

      I've heard very good things and it helps when it's a crazya***ed director that's filmed it. Looking forward to it.
